Attended an ICT Skill Development Programme at INFLIBNET

It was a felicitous opportunity to attend an ICT skill development program at Information and Library Network (INFLIBNET) an autonomous Inter-University Centre of the University Grants Commission (UGC), Ahmedabad, Gujarat from September 7th to 9th 2022. This program aimed to induce more insights and in-depth knowledge on the fundamentals of the Cloud, installation of Shibboleth (remote campus access tool), and building a repository in the Cloud environment.

It was also an excellent chance to visit libraries of esteemed institutions like IIM Ahmedabad, Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology, National Institute of Fashion Technology

Thanks to my college (Sacred Heart College, Kochi) for sponsoring me for this faculty development program

Finishing Program for Library and Information Science Students (FPLISS)

It is, with great pleasure, that I announce the initiation of a Finishing Program for Library and Information Science Students (FPLISS). This course will teach students the finer aspects of personal, practical, and technical skills over and above academic qualifications. Actually, this course is framed out of the uncertainties of my juniors and other freshly out MLISc students related to the day-to-day functions of a library. Please do note that this is not a traditional etiquette course, but a finishing program intended to enhance students’ skills and teach them how to become the most polished and confident version of themselves.
